His reporting of historical events as well as his striking descriptions of his life and times have made this one of the most famous diaries ever published.

Frontis portraits of Pepys, Elizabeth Pepys, Cromwell and Charles II. Red leather spine with raised bands, and marbled boards and endpapers. Top edge gilt.
